Through targeted skills development. Watch now

The Vanuatu Skills Partnership is the new name for Phase 4 of the Vanuatu Skills for Economic Growth Program, previously known as the Vanuatu Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Sector Strengthening Program. It has been funded by the Government of Australia for over a decade, through an agreement with the Ministry of Training and Education. The fourth phase covers the period from October 2017 to January 2021.

This new phase is designed to enhance levels of mutual accountability, co-contribution and partnership for the continued dynamic development of the national skills system.

Partnerships within this skills system are wide-ranging and include:

  • national government departments
  • provincial government
  • training providers
  • industry associations and local entrepreneurs
  • civil society
  • urban, rural and remote communities.

The approach of the Partnership is not to be a ‘stand-alone’ program determined by outsiders; it is locally led with a deep respect for Melanesian leadership, culture and values.  It works within local structures and policies, and supports local agents for positive change in Vanuatu. The approach also recognises that the skills sector can, and should, contribute not only to economicoutcomes, but also to beneficial social and environmental outcomes.

In this way, it is an authentic partnership between the Governments of Vanuatu and Australia with a shared vision of sustainable reform of the national skills system, in line with Vanuatu 2030 – the People’s Plan.
